While monkeys make us smile too, because they are creature full of playful tricks ,this is why many monkey expressions are about tricy people or palyful acts. One of these expressions is monkey sh? , meaning tricks or foolish acts. The meaing is clear if you have ever watched a group of monkeys play for a * for each other. pulling tails ,stealing foods, doing tricks .so when a teacher says to a group of students stop those monkey s right now. You know that the boys and girls are playing instead of studing.you might hear that a saying teacher warn a student not to monkey around with a valuable piece of equipment.you monkey around is something  what you are doing,you are touching or playing with someing you should leave alone.also ,you can monkey around when you feel like doing something,but have no firm idea of what to do .
